Critic Reviews for Walking Out
The mountain backdrops are stunning, but the movie's real draw is its understanding of how children pick up more from their parents than their skeptical, self-pitying moms and dads ever imagine.
A spare but deeply affecting male weepie, in which the intensity of feeling between father and son can find expression only under the most extreme circumstances.
Few movies have evinced such a specifically American understanding of the role that love plays (or doesn't) in becoming a man, or so openly confronted the notion that strength can only be passed down through suffering.
Walking Out settles into a comfortable survivalist-story groove, albeit one specifically designed to dehydrate emotionally repressed males one sob at a time.
Audience Reviews for Walking Out
This is a wonderful film that deserves all the acclaim it has achieved, films like these are why indie cinema is booming at the moment. Andrew and Alex Smith will be filmmakers to watch in the future, this film has a strong cinematic eye but never abandons the key characters of the film. You learn so much about the characters in the short running time and it is slightly annoying a film like this has been ignored by the award ceremonies. You can hardly fault the choices of the filmmakers and they accomplish so much with so little, just having the right actors is essential to these films. One of my top 9 films of 2017 and one of the best films I have seen for sometime, very original. 07/01/2017.
